just say this commercial for this "Mr. Clean Auto Car Wash" for $29.99. it looks like one of those attachments with like chemicals in it for your gaurdens. you put the soap in the attachment for the hose, rinse, soap, scrub, rinse, and you dont have to hand dry! it's kinda like the so-called "spot free rinse" in the do-it-yourself car wash. but they say if it leaves any spots, even on your windows, you can get your money back! has anyone seen this commercial? do you think it would really work? or should i just stick with the ol' maguiars cleaning stuff?

I never tried it, but I've seen the commercial. I guess if you weren't a fanatic over sticking with certain brands for washing the car it could make for a nice, quick "in between" washing system. Or say it's 100* out and muggy as hell.

But nothing will beat getting in there & scrubbing the hard to get spots to clean off dirt.

IIRC this does nothing more than add some polymer to the water to make it so that you don't have to dry your car ever again without spotting. This is the part of washing the car that i absolutely loathe, so if it works you can bet i'll own one.

It's similar to the "Spot-Free" rinse you can get at the Do-it-yourself places.

I bought This about 7 years ago and yes it works. No spots or any thing. But The water comes out so slow it can't even wash off the soap off the car. So I'am hoping the Mr. clean one works better.

I haven't tried it yet, but I admit that I am intrigued.

The FAQ section of the Autodry website has some information about how the product works, plus I think you can get a $5 off coupon there too.

My only concern would be the monetary commitment. Not only do you spend $30 up front, but you have to refill the unit with only their brand of car wash soap and you have to buy new filters periodically. But if it works well enough it may be worth it.

If anyone tries it, please post your opinions.

edit: spelling

Bought the "Mr. Clean Auto Wash" about a month ago. It works the way they say it does. A bit bulky hand held unit, but you get used to it. Waiting to see what they want for a bottle of cleaning solution and a replacement water filter, unit come with only 2 sample sized of each, to do six car washings.

Does anyone know if the cemicals in the spot free rinse is oil based if so then of course it wont leave spots. But really is worth buying can it do a better job than what you do by hand?

I'm pretty sure its not oil based. According to the website, the spot free dry is achieved through the combination of the Dry Rinse Polymers in their wash solution and the filter which de-ionizes the water and removes impurties.

The sheeting action of the Dry Rinse Polymer™ works with the Mr. Clean AutoDry Filter so that a thin layer of de-ionized water is left on the car's surface, which will quickly evaporate, leaving a spot-free result.

I ttried this thing out, and it worked excellent, i also really hate drying my car, and this did a wonderful job, plus the soap seems to be pretty good quality, as it got alot of the tough to clean dirt off with no problem. I think it's a good investment for 20 bucks, but i hope the replacement filters and soap refills aren't real outrageous.

Its not a total spray on, spray off deal. You still have to use a wash mitt and all, only the drying step is eliminated.

I was at Target the other day and noted that AutoDry filters were $5.99 and refill soap was $4.99.

Drying is quite easy!!! I hate to see someone throw good money at something that's not really a problem. If you've kept your Coug properly waxed you should be able to dry it in 3-4 minutes...... ask Morph about how to do this.

I do like their filtration system on the hose though. It strips out the minerals that leave deposits behind. There are many of those systems out there with a larger upfront cost but with a lower cost overall.
